Samsung Galaxy Tab S3: AWOL
The Tab S3 was not unveiled at IFA 2016. However, we still think (hope) it might be coming soon.
In common with the Gear S3, the rumoured Tab S3 is expected to have a similar design to its predecessor – which means Samsung isn’t moving its glass front and rear design that is now seen in its Note, S and A series to its tablets just yet.
Expect a high-resolution, likely Quad-HD (1536×2048-pixel), Super AMOLED display. The new tablet is also tipped to feature Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Cameras are thought to be 8Mp at the back and 2Mp at the front, and for battery capacity there is a rumoured 4,000mAh pack in the Tab S3 8in and 5,870mAh in the Tab S3 9.7in. Expect Samsung’s fast charging tech to feature.
